"Passion For Life" Gate Fold Card for CropStop

It's the last challenge for the month of October at CropStop.  This week's Challenge #43 is to "Make a Card Using a Unique Fold".

For this challenge, I decided to create a Gate Fold Card with (2) selected sticker quotes inside the card.  A Heart Songs Inspirations' digi image which was paper pieced is the main focus of the card.  With this card, I re-created a french window with a view opening to a room with flowers in a pitcher standing on a table near the said window. . . It's a view from a person looking in from outside.

The 1st sticker quote reads:  "It's a fabulous day for believing in all of your dreams coming true, It's a wonderful day for reflecting on how great it is to be you."  Another sticker quote reads:  "It's a wonderful day!  Feel it, smell it, taste it, hear it, breathe it, wear it, dance it, sing it. . . Just do what makes you happy!".  The card finishes off with a stiquote title: "Passion for Life".

SUPPLIES: Cardstock: Papermania, Paper: Star Paper Corp., Stiquote: All About Scrapbooking (Hallmark, Inc.), Digi Image: Heart Songs Inspiration, Other: Art Paper, Pattern Paper, TOOLS: Craft Knife: Tim Holtz, Punch: Martha Stewart.
